Abstract: The present thesis concerns unrepresented litigants in civil courts. Our objective is to develop a theory for self-representation in order to better understand its practical implications. We will first examine the legal sources for unrepresented litigants in civil courts by analyzing the legislative provisions outlined in the Code of Civil Procedure that allow for self-representation. We will also identify the underlying reasons that individuals appearing in the courts choose this option, the role of those who work in the justice system regarding unrepresented litigants, and the place of these cases in the current courts of justice and in the legal system as a whole. We will thus shed light on some of the difficulties that unrepresented litigants face in court, and also the difficulties and resulting consequences for other actors in the judicial system in cases of self-representation. -- Keywords: self-representation, civil procedure, unrepresented litigants
